Need a VISA?

Depending on your country of origin, you may need a visa to enter France.

The online badge order procedure includes a section in which you can ask for an invitation letter to enclose with your visa request.

The French embassy or consulate in your country are the sole bodies with the authority to grant a visa and your sole contact in the event of any queries.


The SIMA invitation letter DOES NOT GRANT ACCESS to SIMA. This document will only help you with your visa application.
